Tabu Red Absinth is a spirit flavoured with wormwood. A red variation on the traditional green drink, Tabu Red Absinth is flavoured with orange for a fruity twist on absinthe. Why was absinthe banned? Banned across Europe for much of the early 20th century due to the neurotoxic properties of wormwood, the plant used to make absinthe, the drink is now legal, but still conveys an air of mystery and danger.
Tabu Red Absinth is strong, with a flavour of fine herbs and bitterness from the added orange flavouring. How do you drink absinthe? Traditionally, absinthe is poured into a glass, and then filtered water is dripped over a perforated spoon containing a single sugar cube, until the sugar is dissolved. Tabu Red Absinth can be enjoyed this way, or added to cocktails for an edgy, bitter flavour.
